When it comes to planning a wedding, selecting a venue, picking the right attire and choosing a wedding party can be tricky business. But choosing the right hairstyle to match your ideal wedding look can be even harder! No matter the setting, no matter the dress, there is one thing every bride wants to be: absolutely beautiful.
So how should a bride wear her hair on her special day? There are many things to consider: the dress and veil, the wedding theme, the bride’s personal style, and, of course, the latest trends in wedding hair and beauty. Lucky for you, we’ve picked some of our favorite looks, straight from the runway, to inspire you and your beautiful brides to be!
Get Flirty with Florals

Florals are an incredible way to tie the bride’s look together - not to mention the endless possibilities for creativity! Want to create a real-life version of the Snapchat flower crown? You can! Want soft, textured curls with flowers floating in between? You got it. This look is incredibly sweet and delicate, perfect for that bride who dreams of a fairytale wedding.
Turn It Up(do)

Perhaps the bride is an old soul. The dress is vintage, the look is classic, and she wants something that pays homage to the iconic brides of the good old days. Thankfully, the updo is still a hit on the runways - with a few modern updates, of course. Structured twists like the ones Naeem Khan’s modeled rocked on the catwalk are a fresh new take on those Grace Kelly updos, and simple vintage rolls are a great choice for a woman looking for that old Hollywood glamour.

Chignon is French for “bun at the nape of the neck”, yet the word itself sounds so romantic. This twist among the classic updos is simple, polished, and oh so chic. This feminine look is achieved by using two equally sized ponytails to create a simple knot secured with pins on the back of the head.
Wavy and Wonderful

For years, this look has reigned supreme on beaches the world over. But the time has come - flowing, beachy waves are walking down the aisle. This style screams “effortless beauty” (or, as it’s come to be known, “I woke up like this”), and it is an excellent choice for the bride who wants her hair to be simple, yet beautiful. Some texturizing spray and a big-barrel curling iron can create a terrific, tousled look that will have guests in awe.
Beautiful, Bohemian Braids

Designers like Claire Pettibone, Theia, and Kelly Faetanini featured models with their hair in glamorous braids that are perfect for the woman who fell in love at Coachella. Whether she sports a sweet braided halo or a braided up do that rivals the cast of Vikings, this style adds a touch of romance to any bridal look.
